12d Model training courses are available for a wide range of fields and experience levels.

The best way to learn 12d Model is with an in-house training course, but we also hold external courses regularly in several cities.  We provide computers and all course material. In-house courses can also be customised to meet your particular training needs. By booking a course, you affirm that you meet the requirements for 12d Model training courses.

12d Model Chains

12d Model Chains are one of the most powerful and useful tools within the software.

This half day training course is for all 12d Model Software users and starts at the beginning. Taking users through examples and techniques to greatly increase productivity and ensure the best is gained from the most powerful Engineering/Surveying software available on the market.

12d Civil DE / BIM

This one day Digital Engineering course teaches 12d Users how to create and manipulate DE / BIM object elements in 12d Model.

We will cover the creation of 3d solids from the parametric design, the addition and manipulation of metadata, and techniques for collaboration with other disciplines.

12d Visualisation

A one-day course to create realistic rendered 3d images and ‘fly through’ movies of your project.

The course will cover techniques to create realistic rendered images of the proposed work during the design phase, then adding the adjacent terrain, street furniture, vegetation and backgrounds. Movies are created showing cars and trucks driving on the road with the use of timelines.

12d Model Configuration

Improve Company productivity by customising 12d Model Software to match your workflows and presentation standards.

This one day training course is for CAD Managers and experienced 12d Model Users to learn tips and techniques on the customisation of 12d Model Software for the organisation to gain maximum productivity and maintain consistency across the team.

12d Model Macro Writing Course

Enhance the power of 12d Model by building custom routines for your bespoke needs.

This is a two-day course for experienced 12d Model operators who wish to enhance workflows and productivity by creating and using macros written in the 12d Model Programming Language (12dPL).  You do not require previous programming experience.

Survey Topographical Procedures

A two-day training course in the use of 12d Model for Detail Survey and Setout.

Learn the procedures for taking raw field data and generating fully annotated plots of the survey, including contours, then generate data files and plots for setout.

Survey Construction Procedures

This two day course for Engineering Surveyors covering techniques for using 12d Model to complete basic design requirements volume calculations and conformance reporting.

In this course you will learn how to use the tools available in 12d Model to deliver the work required of an on-site Engineering Surveyor.

12d Field for Survey

A one-day course covering techniques for setting up and using 12d Field.

In this course you will learn the processes for using 12d Field for setting out points, strings, batters, tins, crossfalls and crowns, and for doing basic pickup.

Design Basics

A two-day course in the use of 12d Model for road and intersection design.

Participants will learn the process for creating road designs in 12d Model, including basic intersection design, adding superelevation and widening, creating bus bays and the like. They will be familiar with the techniques for creating long and cross sections drawings, and the creation of a design Chain to allow for quick engineering changes and updating of the DE / BIM model.

Design Features

This is a two-day in-depth course in the use of Super Alignments as Control Strings (Road Centrelines).  It explores the concepts of Parametric Design, and the techniques for creating and edited Super Alignments both using I.P.s and using Fixed and Floating elements (Parametric Design).

It further builds on the “Design Basics” course with the production of MTF Pavement objects and the writing of snippets.

Track Design

This two day training course focuses on 12d Model Software for Track / Rail design.

12d Model Software has been used on numerous light and heavy rail design and construction projects. This course covers the tools and processes within 12d for the production of a developed DE infrastructure model.

Stormwater Drainage Part I & II


For design engineers who wish to use 12d Model for the design and analysis of Stormwater Drainage Systems.  Participants will learn use of 12d Model for creation of stormwater drainage networks, and for ensuring that the network does not clash with other utility services.

Participants will be familiar with the Hydrological and Hydraulic models available in 12d Model, and have designed and analysed the network using both Rational and Ilsax hydrology and HGL check hydraulics.

Dynamic Drainage


The “Dynamic Drainage” is a one day training course. It follows a logical extension for 12d drainage users and covers the modelling of storage systems such as basins or tanks. Diverging flows and sections cut into the design tin further show the tools available to accurately model the complete system.

Drainage Culvert Design


The “Drainage Culvert Design” is a one day training course. It is for 12d Model users undertaking the modelling of cross drainage structures.

The use of rational and dynamic wave routing methods are used to demonstrate the 12d Model Software drainage tools.

Drainage 2d Tuflow Introduction


Civil and Highway designers can check how stormwater flows across their design, using Road Flow.

Road Flow uses the Tuflow 2d Drainage Modelling engine integrated into 12d Model to quickly and accurately determine flows and velocities across the design surface.  Problem areas are quickly identified and can be corrected.  Videos showing flow across the surface can be used for presentation to a non-technical audience.

Drainage 2d Tuflow Interface


2d Drainage Modelling using the TUFLOW engine can be done entirely inside 12d Model. This course is for Water Resource engineers with experience in flood modelling who wish to increase their productivity by streamlining the modelling process inside 12d Model.

Rivers (12d with HECRAS)

A half-day course covering techniques for using 12d Model to generate HEC-RAS projects, and to display the results of the HEC RAS analysis in 12d Model.

In this course you will learn the process for generating a HEC RAS project from data prepared inside 12d Model, then reading the results of the analysis back into 12d for display and plotting.
